The Moscow Mule has a relatively recent history. According to most reports it was born in 1941 by two businessmen steeped in the cocktail culture of the time: John G. Martin and Rudolph Kunett (who both worked for the company that owned Pierre Smirnoff--as in vodka), and Jack Morgan, who owned a company making ginger beer.
According to the story they've told, they were meeting at the cocktail lounge of the Chatham Hotel in New York City. As they casinos online australia were drinking and conversing, they began wondering what would happen if the vodka met up with the ginger beer. They ordered ice and limes and found out.
The result was the Moscow Mule, one of the most refreshing drinks you can possibly make on a hot summer day. And, it's as easy as hell to make--and added bonus.
